This makes the QC an extremely cost effective solution when the need arises to control more than one locomotive at your operating facility.

      A typical QC comprises:
      • a portable ergonomic radio remote Operator Control Unit (OCU) IP65 watertight enclosure – designed for one hand operation
      • a portable locomotive mounted IP65 watertight enclosure containing the Locomotive Computer Unit (LCU)
      • a portable locomotive mounted IP65 watertight enclosure containing an Electro-pneumatic proportional brake interface
    • TH-AMR

    • The TH-AMR terminal is a universal locomotive radio unit for bi-directional data communication. The applications range from fully automatic hump yard (ADT) operations to master/slave locomotive (MTT) operations. The communication of TH-AMR is remote controlled so that no wiring is necessary.
      The universal locomotive radio unit TH-AMR is a fully redundant radio control with the immediate evaluation of the received signal. The transmission part has a dual processing feature, which sends out the signal alternately.

      The dual layout of the processor has three advantages:
      • Increased availability of the terminal
      • Increased safety of receiver signal
      • Increased range
  • Data Transmission

  • Intelligent subsitute - Wireless data transmission system for control and monitoring.
    Wireless data transmission systems sometimes are the only and more often the most economic solution for controlling and monitoring systems in the processing and the control electronics in industry plants, power stations, raffineries, chemical and steelworks, as well in the conveyor systems sector, rail vehicles and mobile production machinery.
    • IFD 3230

    • The intelligent data transmission radio system IFD 3230 can be used for point-to-point or point-to-multipoint communication applications.
      The IFD 3230 consists of a base station and up to 15 mobile units. The data sent from the base station is received by all the mobile units, each automatically verifying the data and processing if applicable.
      This wireless data transmission system has been used successfully in marshalling yards, where the pushing and shunting of locomotives is not automated, but is manually done by the locomotive operator who receives from the signal box the desired speed, which is displayed on his mobile unit..
